CALL BOX: assemblage

An old telephone dial, old papers, a doll’s eye from Paris, an old green door knob, a watch face…what shall we do with you?

Finished assemblage cradled in the right hand waiting to be played with.

The dial actually works and makes a lovely whirring noise while making the eye ball spin.

Check out the you tube video to see it work

Do you still remember your old phone number?

  1. Very cool (in a slightly creepy kind of way). Yes, I remember my old phone number back when we had only four digits: 6510 (that’s a local New Zealand number from the ’70s)!

    • Mine was 246 9045 …we had a party line…sharing with several neighbours so sometimes you had to wait your turn to call and we all had different rings. And I agree that it is slightly creepy…I am putting it in my kitchen and making everyone who comes over dial their old numbers and make the eye ball spin. LOL.
